VERDICT / This company is a good choice for comprehensive and affordable translation services.
Day Translations started in Tampa, Florida, and has grown to include 16 offices across the United States and around the world. Unlike most of the other translation companies that we reviewed that take an a la carte approach to translation, this company has a robust, multi-step translation process. At Day Translations, turning your document from one language into another starts with a certified translator. It then moves through a quality check by proofreaders. Next, it goes on to desktop publishing professionals who place it back into the file format it came in to reproduce a graphically exact duplicate of the original. Finally, a project manager checks the document to make sure that it is accurate and that it looks just like the original, and then delivers it to the client. At prices that are near to the bottom of our range, along with services that mirror the top few products, Day Translations is a good choice for quality translation at an all-inclusive price.
The company promises quotes for document translation in 10 to 15 minutes, and in our testing, all requested quotes arrived very close to that timeframe. The quotes were surprisingly inexpensive and the assigned project manager paid careful attention to detail. In a quote asking for a translation from English to French, the project manager emailed to enquire if we needed European or Canadian French. In our accuracy tests, the translation quality of Day Translations rivaled the average scores of the top three companies on our lineup.
With each project that Day Translations returns, the company sends a 100% lifetime guarantee that assures you that if you are ever dissatisfied with any translation, even months or years from the delivery date, you can return it for free corrections. And while the company scored lower on our lineup because it does not have ISO or LISA certifications, it has many other translation accreditations. These include being a member of the American Translators Association, the New York Circle of Translators, Arabic Professional Translators Society, the National Association of Judicial Interpreters and Translators, and the Asociación Colombiana de Traductores e Intérpretes, among others.
Day Translations is a much-certified translation service that provides quotes in about 10 minutes. The company's all-inclusive approach means that for the same price as a low-cost, bare bones service, your document goes through a reputable translator, a proofreader, a desktop publishing editor and a project manager. While a few subset translation types like overseas SEO are missing, nearly every other translation specialty is available for projects of any size.
